  1. Maybe her knowledge of shadowy data corporations has some deeper basis.

    Otherwise, she comes off like a jerk here.

      To be fair, Cooper is coming to her asking for help but questioning her abilities at the same time. To me it would give off a negative tone and I wouldn’t be as willing to help if I was in Crystals position.

      I remember someone once said you can’t demand service then belittle those who provide it. Kinda works in this situation as well despite the silliness.

      • A fair point although I didn’t read Cooper as scoffing at her. It felt like he was thinking of comfort zones. In any case, I thought Mel/Lunker’s intervention would have carried some weight with her.

        I dunno, retail still exists

      • Yup. Look at the body language in the arms – both Cooper and Crystal. Cooper’s is a bit on the hostile side in the first panel (“if it’s something you can do”) and Crystal becomes defensive.

        • Except I don’t see Crystal as the vindictive type or unwilling to help someone who doesn’t believe. Besides, Cooper is generally a good person. If a bit snarky.

  2. $50? That’s nowhere near as expensive as hiring one of those “character assassins” to take care of Sanzen for you. I mean not killers but rather hacktivist types that dig up dirt on somebody to set up them the bomb. Y’know, the Futaba Sakuras of the world.

  3. You’re asking her do do something that could get both of you in trouble if it goes wrong Coop. $50 is a cheap price for that.

    • Amen.

      If you can do something well, never give it away for free. The only reason I never charge my parents for the work I do for them is because they invested in me paying for my childhood. I’m just providing dividends on their investment.
